Your fishing license purchase helps to protect and preserve the sport of fishing for years to come. The fees collected from Utah fishing licenses go toward fishery management, habitat development, endangered species programs, and conservation education.


  • State fishing license fees will vary based on residency status and length of time, so be sure to purchase the type of license that best suits your needs. Multi-year fishing licenses can often save you money over the long-term.
  • All persons age 12 and older are required to have a fishing license for any species of fish. Utah fishing licenses are issued every month of the year and are valid for up to five years.
  • For each fishing license that is purchased, a portion of the fees go towards protecting and enhancing the sport of fishing for future generations.
